It's a boy! The couple I mentioned before finally had their baby - a boy. So of course I had to knit something for them. I had a little knitting time at the hospital yesterday, so this is what I have so far:

A cute little hat, (based on the Umbilical Cord hat from SnB) and 1/2 of a baby washcloth. I hope to make another washcloth, and either a bib or socks to match the hat. Knitting for babies is so much fun! I was really hoping they would have a girl so I could knit this, but boys are nice too (just not as fun to knit for).

We're going back to the hospital this afternoon, so I should be able to finish up the washcloths at least.

I am having sock withdrawals. I found out that I NEED to be knitting a pair at all times. There is something so soothing about the continuing rounds of a sock. I have to cast on a pair today. I just cant stand it anymore!

Oh, dear. You obviously are a member of that exclusive group of knitters known as "Sock Knitters". This is an incurable condition. There is only one treatment and it is palliative not curative. It is a six-step-program. You must:

1. Stop whatever you are doing.
2. Get out your sock yarn.
3. Get out your sock needles.
4. Find a pattern.
5. Cast on.
6. Begin to knit.

I guarantee that you will begin to feel better immediately.

Hi there - thanks for the link! I have some boy hat patterns too (after all, mine is a boy).

Forgot to finish my comment! That's a lovely gift you made for them, and I know they are going to have a fun adventure with a little boy around. I did the SnB hat, too, right before Sebastian was born. He wore it a lot.
